paris climate accord
In his joint address to Congress, French President Emmanuel Macron called out lawmakers and President Trump for prioritizing the coal industry over action on climate change, and for leaving the Paris Climate Accord.
“Americans will honor and fulfill the Paris Agreement by leading from the bottom up — and there isn’t anything Washington can do to stop us.”
It adds further shade after the French president's message to “make our planet great again.”
Rejecting the Paris climate accord while diverging from European allies invites the emergence of an alternative global order.
"There is no action, just promises," says James Hansen.
